My beloved grocery store Fairway has an amazing deli counter with delicious salads. I’ve been buying this salad and loving it for a few months and decided to make it myself. This is great as a side dish, at a picnic, as a healthy snack, whatever you can think of. Double the recipe for a bigger group. This recipe is for about 8 servings.

Simple, healthy, and delish!


2 vine tomatoes, chopped into chunks, seeds removed

1 large cucumber, halved and then sliced. I like to first peel stripes down the sides. Looks nice.

1 large avocado, chopped into chunks

1/2 red onion, sliced

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

cilantro, kosher salt, pepper

Directions (couldn’t be easier!):

1. Add all ingredients. Season with cilantro, salt, and pepper. Stir, chill, and serve!

2. Drain after first half hour and every day/time you eat it afterwards.

*If you want to eat it right after you make it, like I did, refrigerate the tomatoes and cucumber first so they are chilled

*If you are making for a picnic or something where you want it to look its best, make it the same day because of the avocado.
